Learning How to Sit

“Be still, and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10 NIV Sitting still is hard for my young children–and it’s hard for me too. The world says go, go, go while the Lord says sit at my feet.

My pastor shared Sunday three reasons why daily time before the Lord is imperative for all of us: 1. To {Read More}

Family Devotions Led by Mom

Family devotions can be one of the always-wanted-to-do-it-but-never-quite-got-to-it parts of a Christian family’s home life.  Many times mothers carry a pain in their hearts because we’d always hoped our husbands would be the spiritual heads of our homes.  We think that means our husbands should cheerfully lead the family without reminders (hints, kicks under the table, jabs in the ribs or ‘that look’).  We expect that the dark, tall and handsome, strong but silent macho man we married will become {Read More}
